Colour poster features the illustration of a group of people in a rural landscape; in the background a large red heart appears in the sky [in place of the sun], emitting rays of light. Máirín [also Maureen] Charlton [neé O'Farrell], (1930-2007) and her sister Nuala O'Farrell adapted John Millington Synge's 'The Playboy of the Western World' into what they termed a "ballad opera" with Nuala O'Farrell providing the score for the musical, working with Charlton on lyrics adapted from Synge's text.
